Sandy Springs Thoracic Spine Pain Helped by Chiropractic Care

For those of us dealing with thoracic (mid-spine) pain, chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy can be an effective approach to decrease symptoms and enhanced our quality of life. This type of treatment centers on biomechanical parameters to help enhance clinical outcomes, such as improving range of motion and decreasing pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help Sandy Springs thoracic spine pain patients find relief at Cross Chiropractic Center.


Thoracic pain is a kind of back pain that involves the middle part of your spine, called the thoracic spine region. This area includes your chest wall, ribs, and lungs. The most common causes of thoracic pain include muscle strain or sprain, disc injury, spinal stenosis, pinched spinal nerve, and/or facet joint dysfunction. Other contributors may include bad posture or an injury to the shoulder or arm that involves pressure on the nerves in this area. Cross Chiropractic Center can figure this out via a complete examination of your spine.


Chiropractors like yours at Cross Chiropractic Center are experienced in identifying and treating musculoskeletal issues like thoracic pain. They depend on a hands-on approach to diagnose and treat these conditions using a variety of techniques such as manual adjustments, electrical stimulation therapy, exercises, and other modalities to lessen inflammation and enhance range of motion in affected areas. Via regular visits with their Sandy Springs chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization and treatment plans customized specifically for them, thoracic spine pain sufferers can find relief without resorting to taking medications or undergoing surgery.


Chiropractic spinal manipulation and mobilization is a form of hands-on treatment that uses precise force, pressure, and direction to relieve spinal pain. Cox® Technic is one very gentle form of treatment that is segment specific, stretches spinal tissues, and eases pain. The applied forces can be measured precisely with proper equipment. Such precision benefits those with thoracic pain. Research has shown that this type of treatment can decrease stiffness in the spine and relax muscles to assist in the reduction of pain levels. One recent study of patients with chronic thoracic pain found that spinal manipulation reduced pain intensity, disability, spinal stiffness, and tenderness. (1) Another report stated that patients who were “responders” to spinal manipulation for non-specific thoracic spine pain relief were those whose expectations of improvement and comfort during spinal manipulation were optimistic. (2) So be positive! Cross Chiropractic Center is here.
